9:03 am
problem for this florida deputy. >> grabs him by the snout and wrestles him down. now meet the hero deputy who's also a mom. >> my 4-year-old understands it. she thinks it's just hilarious. a snowmobile rider is about to take a very short ride, off a ski jump. see if he sticks the landing in a good way. a tour group is chased by a rogue giraffe. >> this thing is mad and it's fast. people are very, very scared. >> hear what's to blame for the 13-foot flip-out. and meet a man on a mission that's not what you think. >> he's looking for some sluts. >> where did you get those? >> you can find some anywhere. they're all over the place. this protective mom is not afraid of no seven-foot alligator. this is jessica mcgregor. notice that she is fighting this
9:04 am
alligator, like crocodile dundee. >> oh, you better believe it. and this alligator happens to be very close to clairemont middle school in florida just before the last bell is about to ring sending students all over the place. she also happens to be a lake county deputy, so she means business. she jumps on him, grabs him by the snout and waits for the proper authorities to take him home. >> look at her, she's not afraid of anything. >> we could just call animal control, they could take care of it. no, i got it. >> apparently they did, but it was going to take two hours for a trapper to come and take care of the situation. >> this is near a school. you really just can't let that thing wander around. >> to find out more and why she decided why to wrestle the alligator, we have jessica via skype right this minute. were you not just a little bit afraid? >> no. i've actually handled alligators before. i grew up in lake county and you're going to come across
9:05 am
them. when they came on my property, my brother and i we got them. we moved them around. once i got him in a position that it was safe for me and he was tired enough, that's when i made the move to get on his back. >> what were you telling your partner during this whole ordeal? >> i said i'll let you know and at the end you get down with me. >> what's tougher, wrestling alligators or wrestling suspects? >> suspects. >> have your daughters seen the video and what are they saying about mom wrestling an alliga r alligator. >> my 4-year-old thinks it's hilarious. by 2-year-old just points and says there's an alligator. >> are your daughters going to learn how to alligator wrestle? are you training them? >> no. i don't know if i want them doing it. >> were you not a little scared that maybe they could hurt you? >> if you stay between their front legs and back legs, they can't get you.
9:06 am
they can't bite their own belly. >> that's all it takes. >> have you been offered a transfer to animal control. >> animal control hands up to four foot and then they call wildlife and send a trapper. >> anything bigger, deputy mcgregor will take care of it. the light house family store in florida has been hit five times recently, burglary. so this detective was conducting surveillance. that man you see there is identified as a 36-year-old william leon. police say he's the one behind the five-finger discount. >> now, he's backing his truck in and putting stuff in the back of the truck. what's he putting there? cookware and metal tin. but, so, people nnics business d he was up to no good because he cut the chain lock off the gate to get the truck in. they put in a call to the detective. before he got there, they said
9:07 am
let's do something so he doesn't get away. notice the people walking up to the gate. >> he's trying to shut the gate? >> that's right. the employees said let's close the gate so he can't get out. my first thought was i hope he scent get in the truck and try at that ram him. >> who are those cars pulling up? >> that is the detective showing up to come talk to this guy. hoe he was arrested on the scene. >> any idea if this guy was responsible to some of the other burglari burglaries? >> yes, he's been linked to the five other recent burglaries and accumulated a total of 16 felony charges and some misdemeanors. i've got a crazy car video three-fer. first one, it's a flurry of crunch. pay attention to the right side. this red car is going to zoom up, try and juke in between those cars. he gets out of shape, crash! look out, goes back in front of the dash cam.
9:08 am
whoa, missed that car, but it's not over. >> this guy is an idiot. >> everybody is trying to miss each other but trying to hit each other. >> it was like he was trying to hit as many cars as he could. and the dash cam we're riding in keeps trucking down the road. >> i wouldn't look back. >> that's a master driver. >> move over to china. this guy riding a rickshaw just barely misses that orange sports car smashing into the side of a bridge. doors pop open and people start piling out. >> and they're bailing from this car for a reason. something seems fishy about this. >> that thing hit that fence and then just popped up. >> this last one would make jackie chan very proud. it's a road rage incident. you see people start to confront the people in this honda right in front of us. doors open, the argument gets heated. here comes the passenger to try to get in on the action, yelling through the window. the driver isn't going to take it much longer. watch what happens next. the honda starts to posture like
9:09 am
he's going to run these guys over, and he does! he hits that one guy, comes back, gives that driver's window a kick. >> where did that guy come from? >> he ran up over the hood of the car. >> on the driver's side you've got two guys trying to beat on your car and now the driver is trying to run people over. >> no one wins in these situations. >> that move was pretty sick. a hormonal imbalance is apparently to blame for this next video. what i'm talking about is a 13-foot-tall giraffe chasing after a tour group. >> maybe now is the point to rid yo for help? >> this thing is mad, fast and shaking these people getting very close. people are very, very scared. >> following us again. >> they said he's kind of known for his odd behavior in this park but never attacked humans before. you can see people on board really holding on because the suv is trying to speed away from this thing. there he is ramming into the
9:10 am
vehicle. took off one of the side-view mirrors, also kicked at the driver during this. people were two miles out. >> that's what these people get out there for, right? to get up close and personal with the animals. you got it. >> now, nobody was injured from this but you can maimagine peop were shaken up. >> what if they just stayed and let it cool off for a second. >> if it can do this to a pretty heavy duty jeep, it would probably knock your block off if it wanted to. these guys are not so welcome, and now they're getting the boot from their adopted home. >> it was a fixer-upper. >> animals had been in there. >> moving day caught on camera, see it next. it's the google experiment that turns any website into a game. >> i want to play right now. >> see how it works and how you can play along "right this minute."
